Citation: 臺灣魚類誌(沈等, 1993); Fishes of the Great Barrier Reef and Coral Sea(Randall et al.,1990)
Character: Dorsal fin with VIII spines & 13-16 soft rays; Anal fin with II spines, and 12-13 soft rays. Gill rakers 9-10 in upper limbs, 19-22 in lower limbs lof first gill arch; lateral line scales 80-88; lateral-line series 100-110. Body compressed, its width 3.3-4 in depth. Normally half-front yellowish, but sometimes nearly all black and juveniles take-on colors of the local venomous Meiacanthus blennies that are yellow or grey. 
Habitat: Mainly in coastal habitats in semi-silty conditions (Ref. 48635); also found near caves and crevices in rocky and coral reefs from a few meters to at least 100 m. A predator that feeds on surprisingly large prey, swallowed whole through its expandable jaw 
Distribution: Indo-West Pacific: Maldives and India to Papua New Guinea, north to southern Japan, south to Lord Howe Island. 
Utility: Commercial species and also valuable in aquarium.
